Orpheus

He walks toward us
But his song never falters.
I’ve never seen this before,
One willing to give his life
For the soul of hers
Only to end
By loosing them both.
I want to give him hope,
True love deserves it.

But this is the sad way of humans,
how like a child they will
clutch to the one thing they think
will save them
bringing an unavoidable sorrow
when it is lost
even though they knew it would be.

And I watch his face
Twist with pain
As he turns and sees
That what he thought to be true
Never was and never could
Loss settles and
Pools in his eyes
I can only sigh and welcome
The girl back to the dark kingdom.
